The Ben-Tal Lab of Computational Structural Biology

Welcome to the Ben-Tal Lab, member of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics, at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyThe George S Wise Faculty of Life Sciences , Tel Aviv University.

Our research is focused on studying the interplay between protein sequence, structure, motion and function using computational tools. The understanding of these relations provides a molecular dimension to our understanding of protein functions and their involvement in genetic disorders and other diseases. Within the broad fields of structural- bioinformatics and phylogeny, we limit our research to specific niches where structure and motion are difficult to obtain experimentally, and the computations provide data beyond our current knowledge.
